In fresh trouble for Nestle India, which is already in the dock over Maggi controversy, weevils and fungus have been found in a pack of Cerelac baby cereal in Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu.


The contaminants were found in a container of Cerelac, following which the samples were sent to food safety authorities for testing, the result of which is expected in one week time.


Coimbatore resident Sriram had bought the Cerelac pack for his baby a few days back and was shocked to find it contaminated. What’s more shocking was the fact that the packet had 2016 as the expiry date of the cereal.

It is yet to be ascertained if the contamination was in just one packet or the whole batch of the product.
